Johannesburg has a varied nightlife with an abundance of restaurants, bars and jazz clubs. But the real parties – until the early morning hours – can be found in the Rosebank and Sandton neighbourhoods, where the cosmopolitan inhabitants of the city enjoy a drink in one of the numerous cocktail lounges or dance until the sun comes up.
Both Rosebank and Sandton are modern and affluent neighbourhoods north of the city centre, home to successful professionals, trendy designers and national celebrities. There is also a sizeable gay community here. At night, people find entertainment and relaxation in Rosebank in one of the many cafés, bars and clubs around the Design District. In Sandton, the party gets started at sundown in the Fourways area and luxury shopping centre of Sandton City.
